Friday evening a Harris County Precinct 3 Constable attempted a traffic stop at Cavalcade and I-69. The vehicle sped up and the driver began throwing narcotics and bundles of money out the window. A stolen gun was also thrown out. The chase continued to Loop 610 and to Homestead Road and ended there in a gas station parking lot after he came upon a traffic light with heavy traffic and then heard the deputies K-9 barking. Inside the vehicle 24 pounds of meth, 2.2 pounds of cocaine all with a street value of close to $130,000. None of the money thrown out was recovered by law enforcement. Most were scooped up by motorists pulling over and grabbing money. This was the same scenario several years ago when a pursuit from Goodrich, Texas came into Montgomery County and the occupants of the vehicle wanted for ATM thefts in Memphis to begin throwing bundles of money out on I-69 in Splendora. There to was believed to have been close to $250,000 in that case. Just over $120,000 was recovered. In that pursuit, two police vehicles had to have engines replaced as the money sucked up onto the radiator blocking airflow and overheating the engines. Cory Avery Talbert, 43, of Houston was arrested. He is charged with evading arrest with a motor vehicle, two counts of possession with intent manufacture delivery of a controlled substance over 400 grams. This is not his first issue with the law in 1999 he was charged with aggravated kidnapping and given 30-years in prison in Harris County. He is on parole until 2029.
